Although the royal couple both went into self-quarantine at their grand Birkhall mansion, Camilla and Prince Charles spent their time in separate living quarters.

THEY HAD DIFFERENT QUARANTINE TIMES TOO

Unlike Prince Charles, Camilla tested negative for the novel coronavirus, and therefore, she had to self-isolate for 14 days. Since Prince Charles already started displaying symptoms, the 72-year-old heir to the throne only had to keep to himself for seven days.

According to a source close to the future king, he is in "good health," and the royal couple found ways to support each other even though they had to keep a safe physical distance.

THE ROYAL COUPLE STAYED 'UPBEAT'

Camilla and Prince Charles remained in "good spirits" throughout their time in isolation, although the Duchess of Cornwall continues to keep a watchful eye on the Prince's health, as a palace source told PEOPLE:

"The duchess is concerned for him but she is aware of his good spirits and therefore is keeping a close eye on him.”

While the couple keeps their spirits "upbeat," they will soon have cause for celebration - as Thursday marks Prince Charles and Camilla's 15th wedding anniversary, and they will be able to spend it together.

PRINCE CHARLES' ROYAL FIRST

Prince Charles also saw to a royal first during self-quarantine, when he reportedly performed a virtual ceremony during the opening of a field hospital in London via video link on Friday. 

Called the Nightingale hospital, its the first of several field hospitals to help with the overflow of patients already over-crowding the regular hospitals in Britain.

According to reports from the BBC, over 9,000 people are being treated in hospitals across the UK after testing positive for the novel coronavirus.

The Prince of Wales reportedly said he only had "mild symptoms" in a video about his experience with the virus. But even though he now finds himself "on the other side" of the disease, Prince Charles still feels the state of general isolation and social distancing acutely. 

ANOTHER UK LEADER DIAGNOSED WITH THE VIRUS

Boris Johnson, the British Prime Minister, became another leader in the country to announce that he had contracted the coronavirus.

He initially went into self-isolation in his flat on Downing Street, and the Prime Minister continued with official duties - but later admitted to the hospital for further testing since his symptoms haven't abated in ten days.

However, hours after being admitted to St. Thomas Hospital, Prime Minister Johnson got transferred to the Intensive Care Unit as a precautionary measure should the need for a ventilator arise.
